Students spell out Emory.

Part of Emory

Oxford College is located in the place where Emory was founded more than 180 years ago. When Emory moved to Atlanta in 1919, the university retained its original campus, later creating Oxford College. The university's oldest buildings are found on the Oxford campus.

Emory Undergraduate Education

Emory University's two undergraduate colleges, Oxford College and Emory College, both have roots on Oxford's campus. It's where Emory College was established in 1836, when it began to shape a generation of leaders in the South, the nation, and beyond.

Today, Oxford College is one of two choices for entering Emory undergraduates. Oxford provides a distinctive, liberal arts–focused education for the first and second years of college in a small-town, close-knit setting. Students excel here as leaders inside and outside the classroom.

The Transition to Emory’s Atlanta Campus

Like all Emory undergraduates, Oxford students have a choice to make as they approach their junior year. They can continue to study the liberal arts in Emory College of Arts and Sciences, nursing in the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing, or apply to Goizueta Business School.

Because Emory's two campuses are a short shuttle or car ride away, most Oxford students are familiar with the Atlanta campus before they arrive as juniors. However, in order to make the academic and residential transition seamless, Oxford students participate in joint student orientation activities on the Atlanta campus and workshops in the second semester of their sophomore year.
